Boston is strong, but Archdiocese is not

Yesterday was a very somber tribute for the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon victims, namely Krystle Marie Campbel, Martin William Richard, Lingzi Lu, and Sean Collier.



While the city, state, and BAA did their jobs for a dignified public memorial, the clergy of the Archdiocese of Boston refuse to offer a Requiem Mass for the repose of these Catholic souls.


Even one year later, the archdiocese nor any priest in the Boston area has offered a Requiem Mass for these poor souls. They are entitled to the Requiem Mass by the virtue of their baptism, assuming they were Catholics in good standing.


While the City of Boston continues to be Strong, the once Catholic city and the clergy who minister there are very weak at all levels, with a few exceptions.


While these souls were murdered by Radical Islamic terrorists, one could assume they all died as martyrs. But until we can even talk about sainthood for these persons, a Requiem Mass (either collectively or 4 individual ones) is required in order to validate any cause for canonization.

Holy Week

Today, Palm Sunday, begins the final week of Lent, Holy Week the holiest and most important week on the Church calendar. Palm Sunday begins with a triumphant parade into Jerusalem and ends with a sorrowful Mass dedicated to the Holy Name, where the Passion according to Saint Matthew is read. Mark's passion is read on Tuesday, and Luke's on Spy Wednesday, the day that Judas betrayed Our Lord. Spy Wednesday ends with the Tenebrae service, which symbolizes the darkness yet to come.

Maundy Thursday has two Masses: one in the morning said by the Bishop in his cathedral church to bless the holy oils (The Chrism Mass), and the Mass said at every parish in commemoration of the Last Supper, for which the ciborium is sent to the altar of repose and the high altar is stripped.

Good Friday, the most sorrowful day of the year, is when Saint John's Passion is read and the Cross is unveiled and venerated.

Holy Saturday is the day of the Great Vigil of Easter, where light shines in the darkness, the prophecies are read, where adult catechumens are baptized and confirmed, and where afterwards the First Mass of Easter is said.

While these events of Our Lord's Passion, Death, and awaited Resurrection take place, please pray that I find my future Catholic wife this week, so that I will have someone to accompany me to these events for years to come.

Rejection of Tridentine Mass and public school prayer go hand-in-hand

This post addresses the broader spectrum of why America could easily fall through the cracks without Divine Intervention.

First, I found this Youtube video on the damning statistics that have took place ever since the Supreme Court struck down school prayer in Engel v. Vitale in 1962:


Secondly, in the Roman Catholic Church, the Second Vatican Council began in 1962. The 1962 Missal is the current Tridentine missal, which was used during the Council. (With the exception of adding St. Joseph's name in the Canon and new saints to the calendar, it is basically the same Missal originally issued by Pope St. Pius V.)

After watching the video, you can see the pathetic single mother rates, STDs, violent crime, and so forth. The Catholic Church started to go downhill in 1969, when the Novus Ordo Missae was published.

Today, most baptized Catholics don't go to Mass, don't go to Confession, deny the Real Presence, abort, divorce, and contracept at more rapid paces than their non-Catholic counterparts. During the 1960's and '70's, many Catholic dioceses and mainstream religious orders ordained gay-positive clergy and changed the liturgy to reflect their heretical beliefs. They are chiefly responsible for getting Obama elected and for the destruction of Holy Mother Church in the United States.

Our public schools have become one of the most dangerous places for our children to be, especially every time we hear about school violence. If God had a more of a presence in our public schools, chances are this immorality would not happen.

Until Our Lady's request at Fatima is fulfilled, there will be no  Traditional Latin Mass restored at every parish, no overturning Engel and Roe v. Wade, no repentance of homosexuals, and no world peace.

Until Our Lady's request at Fatima is fulfilled, there will still be American schoolchildren sitting down and not putting their hands over their hearts for the Pledge of Allegiance, the National Anthem, the moment of silence, Taps, at parades, and at the flagpoles.

If Our Lady's request is fulfilled, it will be sure for certain that the United States of America will actually live up to its billing: a nation under God.

"Catholic" Family Festival anything but

There have been several advertisements all over the place about the 2014 Boston Catholic Family Festival to be held on April 26th at Boston College High School in Dorchester.

I have a warning for anyone who is considering to attend: DON'T!

With the exception of Leah Darrow, the speakers at the program are not orthodox. There is going to be "praise and worship" music during the program and liturgical dancing during the Novus Ordo they will offer. There is no way a good solid orthodox Catholic family can attend this event.

This will happen at my wedding reception...



As you can see in the above video, the clip is the beginning of a civil wedding ceremony, where the Pledge of Allegiance is recited.

As a Catholic, the only place that the Pledge can be recited at my wedding festivities is at the beginning of the wedding reception, since it is not part of the Roman Rite. At least we'll most likely do the National Anthem first and a moment of silence thereafter.

With the Pledge gradually disappearing and our nation turning pagan, we must take a bold stand in favor of a nation under God, and if this includes reciting the Pledge at a wedding reception, so be it.

I would not do for malice, but for love of the good things that the United States has to offer.
